Chocolate Pudding

The other day I wondered how hard it would be to make homemade chocolate pudding. Turns out its not that hard. It does take a little time, but the result it well worth it! 

I have a fun Halloween treat that I made with this pudding and I am going share it on Friday. So come back!


Chocolate Pudding
Recipe Source: SmittenKitchen.com

3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
2/3 cup Granulated Sugar
1/8 teaspoon Salt
3 cups Whole Milk
6 ounces Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1. Combine the cornstarch, sugar and salt in the top bowl of a double boiler. Slowly whisk in the milk, incorporating the dry ingredients. Place over gently simmering water and stir occasionally, scraping the bottom and sides with a heat proof spatula. Use a whisk if lumps begin to form. After 30 minutes, when the mixture begins to thicken, it will coat the back of a spoon, add the chocolate. Stir for about 4 minutes, or until the chocolate has melted and the pudding is smooth and thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.

2. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a serving bowl and pour into individual serving dishes. Place plastic wrap directly on top of the pudding and smooth it against the surface before refrigerating to prevent a skin from forming.

3. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. The pudding will keep for up to 3 days.

  1. This looks yummy! Can't go wrong with chocolate in my opinion. :) I made a baked chocolate pudding, but it had more of a cake like texture.

    TFS the recipe.
